The largest community-owned hydro power project in Scotland has been officially opened by Scottish Energy Minister Paul Wheelhouse. The 500kW project at Rumbling Bridge, near Kinross, is powered by the River Devon. The village is named after an unusual double bridge, which gives off a distinctive rumbling reverberation at lower levels. Wheelhouse said: “I am delighted to formally open the Rumbling Bridge Community Hydro Scheme. This project will generate community benefit funds of £5,000 plus per year, and the community are currently consulting on how this can best be directed to the benefit of local people.
